The following is a list of two stocks that have seen the SMA50 move below the SMA200 (a bearish momentum signal called the "Death Cross").

In addition, these two companies have, on average, seen more insider buying than insider selling over the last two years (excluding exercised options). For each company we'll list the average number of shares purchased by insiders on the open market over the last two years.

Is the market underestimating these names? Insiders seem to think so. Use this list as a starting point for your own analysis.

Insider data sourced from Fidelity, short float and performance data sourced from Finviz.
